Article 85ZO: Right to remuneration for time off under Article 85ZN

Paragraph (1) makes provision for an agency worker entitled to attend adoption appointments under Article 85ZN to be paid remuneration by the temporary work agency for the number of working hours for which the agency worker is entitled to be absent at the appropriate hourly rate, calculated in accordance with paragraphs (2) and (3).

Paragraph (4) provides that any amount of remuneration for time off under paragraph (1) does not affect any right to contractual remuneration.
